Ireland forward Devin Toner has signed a three-year contract with the IRFU which will see him remain at Leinster until at least June 2020.
Toner made his senior debut for Leinster against the Border Reivers in January 2006 and has since made 187 appearances for them and scored three tries.
The 30-year-old lock made his Ireland bow in the 20-10 win over Samoa in November 2010 and has now featured 42 times for his country.
Toner told Leinster's official website: "I am delighted to have re-signed with the IRFU and Leinster. There is a huge amount of talent coming through at Leinster and it is a really exciting time to be involved with the province.
"There is a real opportunity to be successful at both provincial and national level over the coming years and I look forward to playing a part in helping to achieve that success."
Leinster chief executive Mick Dawson added: "Devin has established himself as a key player within Leinster Rugby and Ireland and securing his services is great news for both.
"Player retention is a huge focus and for a player of Devin's calibre to commit to Leinster is a huge statement for us as a club and an endorsement of the work that [head coach] Leo [Cullen] and the rest of the coaching staff are doing.
"We look forward to working with Devin over the coming years."
